        Mine too, and for those of us who don't speak Italian, my friend
Jackie meant *picky.*  Jackie, is *Porte Aperte* that old?  I stand
corrected here.
        So, are we seeing *Pane e Cioccolata* here?  When it first came
out, I was completely awed by it, in the early 1970s, but upon seeing it a
second time, it lost something.  It did not look that strong, all of a
sudden.  By the way, does anybody know where I could find a copy of
*Tragic Bus,* a film with a similar topic of immigration?  If I remember
correctly, it is Turkish immigrants trying to get to Sweden.
